I first met Carrie and Greg at the Oakfield Farm Expo at the beginning of the year, and we had an instant connection. They are such a beautiful young couple, and I just love them to bits! I am super excited for their Wedding in December.
It was a beautiful afternoon, with heavy threatening clouds when Chris and I met Carrie and Greg at the Meyersdal Nature Estate in Johannesburg South for their E-shoot. While we prayed for the rain to stay away, we bundu bashed a bit and found the perfect spot for the shoot. The wildlife watched us from a distance and we were even treated with a rainbow for a few minutes. I just love this shoot, it is difficult to believe that we were in the middle of the city as it is such a beautiful and nature filled place.
Carrie told me a few things about their love story, and I just have to share ... it shows how they were just destined to be together, a perfect ginger pair!
Our story begins at Alberton High School. We were both in the same school year, but never attended the same classes. I definitely noticed him though and coincidentally one of my friends even suggested that he could be my future husband. Following from graduating from matric, our lives took different paths and we lost contact. Fast forward six years and we found ourselves befriending each other on Facebook. Our story could make a great case study for social media love stories!
I first met this amazing couple at the end of June, when I got a call telling me they were planning their wedding for the end of July. We fast tracked the meeting and engagement shoot to make sure all would be ready in time for this short notice wedding. So a mere 2 weeks before their big day, Chris and I met Rene and Tinus at Delta Park on a pretty chilly winters afternoon.
Both of them are rather camera shy, so we started off slowly getting everyone relaxed, and soon the two of them were giggling away, and having an absolute ball. I have to say that I love this couple, they are really the sweetest people and its so wonderful that they met each other and are so much in love. Here is a peak at their engagement shoot which was so much fun for us all!
Quirky and often described as rather eccentric, I am a lover of all things beautiful. Capturing special moments and making my clients look and feel beautiful is what makes me happy!
